Nuclear medicine study with PET and concurrent CT imaging, skull base to mid-thigh
CPT Code: 78815
Imaging procedure cost estimates include the cost of taking the image and the cost of interpreting it. If the imaging and interpretation are done by different providers, the total cost is attributed to the facility that has the highest payment (usually the facility providing the imaging) even if they did not provide both services. Sometimes a provider may offer a discount if more than one image is taken.
